Good balance is important for practically everything. Balance boards are fitness tools designed to help you improve balance, strength, and coordination. Balance boards are used not only for exercise purposes but also for physical therapy and rehabilitation. Earlier they are used only for athletic training. It typically has a flat, uniform, and hard surface on top with an unstable bottom in the center of the board. Users stand on the flat surface and try to maintain balance. At first glance, people get intimidated by the balance board. Once they start using it, they will love it. Balance boards are mainly made of plastic or wood


Balance boards mainly include wobble boards and rocker boards. Rocker Boards only rock either front to back or side to side, depending on how you position the board. On the other hand, Wobble Boards rock throughout all directions with various degrees of tilt angle on a domed base. Wobble boards can help retrain your balance after injury and prevents further injuries. Rocker Boards aid in posture improvement and abdominal and trunk strengthening along with increased tone in the hamstrings, quadriceps, and calf muscles.

Balance board for Physical Therapy

Physiotherapists use balance boards for many reasons. They include

1. Rehabilitation of lower limb injuries

Balance board exercises are important for the rehabilitation of lower leg injuries, especially ankle sprains. Balance board exercises strengthen the muscles and improve proprioceptive ankle sense and balance ability and reduce the overall new injury rate. Athletes use the balance board to improve and strengthen muscles before running to minimize ankle and knee injuries and make rehabilitation time shorter.

2. Upper limb strengthening and proprioceptive training

Balance board exercises are also useful for upper limb injuries, especially shoulder injuries. Physiotherapists use a balance board to train your upper extremities for improved balance, stability, and proprioceptive awareness. The board also introduces instability to exercises such as pushups and tricep dips to boost their challenge. Physical therapists normally ensure that the client can perform such exercises with controlled movement and correct form before starting them on a balance board. Otherwise, the client can be at risk of injuries to the shoulders, elbows, or wrists.

3. Core muscle training

A strong and stable core is vital for good functional activities and injury prevention. The abdominal muscles are made up of several muscles that overlap each other. Their main function is to support the torso and keep the spine straight. The torso powers all our movements. If these muscles get weak, it can lead to chronic lower back pain. Balance board training help with core stabilization and strengthening.

4. Fall prevention training for seniors

Wobble board training is extremely effective for elderly people to improve their standing balance. Studies have shown that using a balance board three times a week can significantly reduce the risk of falls in the elderly population.
